Enjoyed a lunch at Alborz -- had the chicken kebab with 1/2 serving of rice and 1/2 serving of salad -- should really have been 2 meals! Delicious!

This restaurant serves the best kabab and rice and other Persian dishes in the area. White cloth table, clean and good and fast service. Good take out options.
